Dolby Atmos Certified & DTS:X Compatible
Remove the magnetically-sealed, top panel from the speaker and place the A90 elevation speaker module (sold separately) within the top of your speaker to hear and feel multi-dimensional sound.
Aluminum Dome Tweeters
Tweeters play higher in frequency than what is heard by the human ear, creating an authentic reproduction of sound as the artist intends in the studio or concert hall.
Balanced Double Surround System
Improves driver excursion which results in the selected driver producing bass output usually associated with a larger driver while retaining the improved dispersion and midrange definition of a smaller driver.
Acoustically Transparent Grille

Totally Inert, Resonance-Free Cabinet
Maximum rigidity with strategically placed bracing improves imaging while reducing resonance, further reinforcing our clean and powerful sound.
Cast Aluminum Base with Spikes and Floor Glides
The wide footprint increases overall stability of the tower speaker, while the addition of spikes or floor glides help keep your speakers firmly in place.
Powerful minimalist aesthetic with precision-machined components creates a sophisticated look to complement the most distinguished home theater. The sharp lines of the BP9000 Series also echo its precise sonic signature.
LED Backlit Definitive Technology Logo
To highlight the integrated powered subwoofer and show that your speaker is receiving a signal, we’ve added an LED logo at its bottom front panel.
These are fine speakers at full price. But value wise on sale is the way to go. Can't imagine better sub 1k sound in a tower. Using the lfe connection though not the "recommended" option absolutely gives more than enough space to fill a good sized room.
I do not have much to say, this is an amazing speaker with an amazing sound, I think the 5k speaker will produce same sound quality, and to the Bose system fan I would like to inform them that Bose is really low comparing to this
I got these speakers unheard I just wanted decent speakers with the built-in subwoofer and these are recommended to me. All I can say is wow it filled the room with Sound and Bass and you really can't tell where it's coming from it's amazing. I also purchased the atmos add-on modules and I am really loving it so far
At first I was looking to install in-wall speakers but after testing the Definitive Technology towers versus in-wall speakers I was immediately convinced, the clear voice and deeper sound you get is outstanding, great product for the price.
I would recommend this to a friend

Bought these to replace a sound bar and it’s definitely night and day difference. The intergrated subwoofer definitely adds substantial bass to home theater and making these more portable and flexible for systems that doesn’t require any separate subwoofer. Movies have an immersive sound stage and music plays clear. I have these setup with the CS 9060 and A90 atmos topper and it’s works perfect with my setup. I have these running in a 3.1.2 configuration and I am happily satisfied with the sound stage. These are bi pole speakers and will create a larger image to any room. I would recommend buying these if it’s on sale that way you can buy the atmos speaker to complete the setup. Great performance for the price.
First off - these speakers sound amazing. I am not an audiophile, but I was going between purchasing some floor standing speakers and then adding (2) subwoofers, or just purchasing these towers with the integrated subs.
I went to BBY and listened to all the different independent subwoofers in the store, and while they were "okay", none of the options blew me away. Then I went into the room with the Def Tech speakers, and we watched the same movie clip with the BP9080x tower speakers, and the decision was made instantly. The subs sounded signifcantly deeper, as well as more balanced than any of the individual subwoofers, and the comparison was not even close. The Def Techs sound 2X better, easy.
I pulled the trigger, and took them home. Set them up into my home theater, and they sound amazing. The bass is off the charts, to the point that I get in trouble each time I from the neighbor when I watch an action movie, as it shakes their entire wall of their house! I have the subs at 20%, but if you crank them to 40% (or 50% if you're crazy), they will seriously shake your entire house! I cannot believe the amount of bass these things kick out.
Now the bad...
The automatic turn on of the subwoofer amplifiers are a horrible idea. When i turn on a movie, the subs won't turn on unless there is a powerful enough signal, I have to turn the volume up to a level where it recognizes the bass, then sometimes 1, sometimes both of the subs will come on. Then about 2 seconds after the subs turn on, a big "THUMP" happens EVERY TIME! The only way to avoid this that I've found is to have a separate surge protector with only the towers hooked up to it, and then power the surge protector on before every movie. This turns the subs on with no signal, prevent the big "thump" noise.
Then, after watching a movie, the subs remain on for about 10-15 minutes, but when the amps turn off, the big "Thump" occurs again. It is so distasteful that I stopped using the speakers for half a year because it sounds so bad. I called Def Tech and told them the issue, but they wouldn't even hear me out - they simply sent me a new amplifier in the mail and said that will fix the issue. NOTE - both towers do this, so I will have to write Def Tech back and request another amp, one for each tower to fix this issue (if this truly is the problem). If it is the problem, what are the chances both towers would be defective?
I purchased the center speaker as well, the CS9080, and that speaker has some issues occurring as well, so I'm losing faith in Def Tech's quality. The sound is amazing, but not sure they are using quality parts, or the sourcing partners have some serious quality control issues.
If I were to go back in time, despite the Def Techs sounding incredible (from a bass perspective), I think I'd avoid getting integrated subwoofers, and just get a pair of quality KEF Q-series, or some nice B&W's, and then pair with a couple SVS subwoofers and call it a day. Non-powered speakers should last FOREVER, so by removing the weak link (amplifier in integrated sub), you remove the one potential issue you could have.
I have a full Def Tech setup, BP9080x towers, CS9080 center, and the 9080 surrounds, and they sound great, but for all the stress they've caused me with quality issues, I'd avoid.
The sound is great but the issue with the logo LED light is not working after only a few hours from using the speaker, also the top part seem to be very cheap built and they used a cheap glue which does not go with the 2k price tag . I decided to replace the speaker thinking I just had a bad luck, but the replacement did the same thing and again the LED is not working on the second day. Definitive Technology customer service was worst than the speaker itself, after a long wait I had a guy sounded like a teenager who has knowledge of the product, so he put me on hold for long time and never got back to me. I called again and after a long wait someone asked me to return the speaker because it is again defective. if any of Definitive Technology employees reading this, please let me know if YOU HAVE Quality control to check your products before selling them!!
I believe Bowers & wilkins or martin is a better option.
I bought a 75" QLED Samsung TV and bought these tower speakers to go with it. These speakers give you that theater sound for movies, sports, video games, and TV but then give you that club sound and concert sound for music. I hear no distortion when I crank up the volume. I have to disagree with other reviews and say that a subwoofer is needed with these to create the perfect sound overall. The ATMOS speakers that attach to the top are worth every penny and a must have item to pair with these towers.
A:AnswerIn my opinion, YES. The bases provide a secure anchor. Without them, I would be worried about them tipping over when touched by a child or pet. My listening area is carpeted, and I also use the 'spiked' feet on the silver bases. They give me extra confidence against tipping.
A:AnswerMost likely; yes. You could turn the bass down (there's a control knob on the back panel), but then why get them in the first place? Definitive makes several smaller models. I have an older set that are the equivalent of the BP9040s in my home gym, and the bass is almost overpowering.
A:AnswerYou’ll have to be careful with them. The subwoofer amps, and there are two, are pretty strong. In my living room, they vibrate furniture that is 6-8 feet away from the speakers. However, the subwoofers are adjustable. You should be able to find a good compromise level for the base that won’t anger your neighbors and you can still enjoy the great sound of these speakers.
A:AnswerI purchased those speakers about 8 months ago. LOVE THEM. Great sound with a built in subwoofer. Mine are set up in a game room and I use mine strictly for music, not part of a home theater system with tv. After explaining to my Best Buy sales rep how I would be using my speakers, I went with recommendations of the Best Buy sales rep and paired the speakers to a Rotel A12 (https://www.bestbuy.com/site/rotel-120w-2-0-ch-amplifier-black/5590306.p?skuId=5590306). Works beautifully for my needs; provides over the air radio, auxiliary cord input, USB input, and Bluetooth input. along with inputs from other desired sources (phono, cd, tape, etc.).
As a side note, I explained that my primary "must have" for this sound system was that I want to not only hear the music, but I also wanted to go old school and FEEL that music thumping. The Rotel A12 powers these speakers beautifully without distortion (very minimal, if any) at the extreme higher volumes.
Hope this helps.
A:AnswerI'm not sure if this will help, but I took the information from Best Buy under the specifications area. The Speakers are 34.8 inches tall, 13 inches wide, 11 inches deep and weigh 37 lbs each. estimating the box size, I would guess that the boxes (2) would be about 35 to 36 inches tall by 15 to 16 inches in width, by 12 to 13 inches deep. I'm sure you could probably call Best Buy and have them email you the exact dimensions. I hope this helps.
